Maggie Grace and Matthew Cooke call off engagement

Maggie Grace and Matthew Cooke have called off their engagement.

The 'Taken' star was seen without her engagement ring when she attended 'The Choice' premiere in Los Angeles earlier this week but the pair parted ways in November, only nine months after announcing Matthew had got down on one knee.

Posting a photograph of a quote that reads 'Life is a balance of holding on and letting go,' to her Instagram account in November, Maggie admitted she was single again.

She captioned it: "Recently, I've been embracing balance... and being single again (sic)"

When the pair announced their engagement, they quoted the same 13th-century poet, Rumi.

Sharing a picture of the pair, she wrote: "The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers do not finally meet somewhere. They are in each other all along ...

"Matthew Cooke & I are so excited to share our engagement with you guys! I could not feel more grateful to share my life with this incredible man. (sic)"

Meanwhile, Maggie previously revealed she doesn't date actors as their hectic schedules means they are away from each other for too long.

She said: "I haven't dated too many actors. I did when I was really young, for a couple of years, but it's nothing against actors. Ian Somerhalder and I are still very good friends. You can certainly reconcile schedules with actors but it takes some doing, and I just don't have that energy."
